President Donald Trump let FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe have it in a series of tweets on Saturday and Sunday accusing him of rampant corruption in the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server. In addition to revelations that two top FBI staffers exchanged pro-Clinton, anti-Trump text messages, McCabe remains under investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general for how he handled the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s private email server. This comes after McCabe’s closed door testimony in front of congressional committees this week.“How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?”
He followed with news that McCabe is planning to retire in a few months when he becomes eligible for his government pension in 2018. McCabe announced his retirement after a disastrous round of Congressional testimony, where he reportedly failed to answer basic questions about his connections with the anti-Trump Russian dossier and the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
In a seven-hour interview with the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday, McCabe repeatedly declined to answer even the most basic of questions with regard to whether the bureau has been able to verify the substantive allegations in the now infamous Trump dossier. McCabe failed to identify a single substantive allegation that has been corroborated throughout his lengthy hearing.
“FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is racing the clock to retire with full benefits. 90 days to go?!!!”
President Trump also accused McCable of political bias in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. He cites McCabe’s use of his official FBI email account to promote his wife Dr. Jill McCabe to promote her political campaign in her 2015 bid for Virginia state Senate, as well some questionable donations to the tune of approximately $675,000. Jill’s campaign received donations from former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe’s super PAC, as well as the Democratic Party of Virginia. McAuliffe is a Democrat with longstanding ties directly to Bill and Hillary Clinton.FBI’s Andrew McCabe, ‘in addition to his wife getting all of this money from M (Clinton Puppet), he was using, allegedly, his FBI Official Email Account to promote her campaign. You obviously cannot do this. These were the people who were investigating Hillary Clinton.’”
McAuliffe’s political action committee ponied up $467,500 to Jill’s campaign, and the Virginia Democratic Party gave more than $200,000 at a time when McCabe headed the FBI’s Washington field office. That same field office provided the manpower for the investigation into Hillary’s secret email system. McCabe would later be promoted to the third-ranking post at the FBI, and then named deputy.
Jill ran to unseat sitting Republican Senator Dick Black. His ouster would have swung control of the Virginia state Senate to Democrats. Black ultimately won the senatorial election and states it was his belief McCabe should resign from his post over what he and many others view as a significant bias or conflict of interest.
Black also revealed that many local Democrats in Virginia were irritated at what they perceived as McAuliffe handpicking Jill to run for the seat and he wonders just how much the money influenced the FBI’s investigation into Hillary and her actions.“It is kind of hard to imagine that a huge contribution of that magnitude to his wife would not consciously or subconsciously influence how he would decide the case. Now I can’t say for certain, but this is the reason that the ethical standards say you should avoid even the appearance of impropriety because ordinary people looking at the facts would say this really stinks and this really, really smells of government corruption.”
McCabe has also exhibited a significant level of corruption and bias in other areas acting against the best interests of the country. Many in the FBI have spoken of McCabe’s penchant for carrying vendettas and believe that former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn may have been targeted by McCabe due to Flynn’s intervention in an agent sexual discrimination case against McCabe and other top officials.
